Our Programs

Neuroscience and Mental Health

For most students, we recommend the Neuroscience and Mental Health program. This is our largest program, and is very popular with students interested in pursing Health and Life Science careers including research, medicine, pharmaceutical/biotechnology industries, and teaching. Launched in 2012, this new program maximizes the breadth of cutting edge neuroscience courses that are available to you.

Combined Honours (Biology)

The Department also offers an unofficial Combined Honours with the Department of Biology. This means the degree title is officially B.Sc. in Neuroscience although there is an equal split of NEUR and BIOL courses, with emphasis on upper-year BIOL courses with labs. Students may choose to complete their honours thesis through the Department of Biology, as opposed to the Department of Neuroscience.

Minor in Neuroscience

The Minor in Neuroscience is available to students registered in degree programs other than those offered by the Department of Neuroscience. It consists of NEUR 1202, NEUR 1203, NEUR 2201, NEUR 2202, plus 2.0 credits of eligible 3000-level or higher NEUR courses.
